Hi @nazia_akhtar ,

Thank you for your question!

You can add it with the next command before using jq:

apt-get install -y jq

Hi this is part of a script I am running to attach an image to a page. However, I am getting these errors:

line 10: jq: command not found

line 12: [: =: unary operator expected

Line 10 is ATTACHMENT_TITLE=$(curl -u $USER_NAME:$USER_PASSWORD \ -X POST \ -H "X-Atlassian-Token: nocheck" -F "file=@${ATTACHMENT_FILE_NAME}" -F "comment=File attached via REST API" \ ${CONFLUENCE_BASE_URL}/rest/api/content/${PAGE_ID}/child/attachment 2>/dev/null \ | jq -r '.results[].title')

Line 12 is if [ ${ATTACHMENT_TITLE} = ${ATTACHMENT_FILE_NAME} ]; then

Am not sure what is causing this error as I got this script from an atlassian page. Please let me know how I can fix and run this?

- step:
name: "prova default"
- echo "Deploying version is $VERSIONRELEASE"
- ls
- mkdir build
- touch build/test.json
- ls build
- apt-get install -y jq
- declare -x VERSION=$(jq -r '.version' package.json)
- echo "package.json version is $VERSION"

+ apt-get install -y jq

sorry, but does not work

Hi Luca,

I had the same issue.

Before you can install jq, you have to make an "apt-get update"


- apt-get update 
- apt-get -y install jq
Like Shailesh Gupta likes this
 apt-get update  this part is required
